Smile Comparable to iPod Touch?

I was just wondering if there are or will be any mp3 players that are comparable to the iPod Touch. I really like the wifi capabilities and design of the Touch, but not the price tag, and I'm not really into the Archos wifi (its a little larger than I'd like to carry around). So, does anyone know of any that are possibly in the making or are already on the market? Thanks.

Only the P2 or the Archos players come to mind.

Maybe get a good MP3 player and a dedicated PDA, you might be better off than with an all-in-one solution.

Nokia N800/N810 also comes to mind (1 of the Mods has it and has only good to say about it/them).

Creative's new Zen X-Fi is due out soon and reportedly has full Wi-Fi capabilities, including the ability to stream media from external sources, and possibly even chat/IM capabilities.

This is really starting to look like a winner - IMO wait and see if this is the player for you - absolutely phenomenal!

Cause it ends up being different than all the other players out - and that makes it attractive IMO.

I hate to say it but I think apple will be the only one who has this kind of thing for a long time. You may see some other ones but they won't have the same working interface, it will have bugs and too many issues.

I would say t he Samsung P2. It is one of the few comparable products. It doesn't have wifi, but has bluetooth.

That's a rebranded Teclast player.... might have decent sound quality for a Chinese OEM product.
